“What to expect” and “how to plan ahead” are often difficult questions to answer, yet they remain important and frequent questions asked by our community members. In this webinar, we will discuss several of the key symptoms that may arise as people move farther in their journeys with a diagnosis of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration/syndrome (CBD/CBS) or multiple system atrophy (MSA) as well as potential strategies for managing them. We will also talk about prognosis, end-of-life care, and optimizing quality of life regardless of where someone is in the disease course.

There will be time at the end for Dr. Fleisher to answer questions from viewers. Submit your questions via registration or email to events@curepsp.org.

This webinar will be recorded and will be available on our YouTube channel following the event. We will email all registrants a link when it’s ready to view.

Registration is free of charge!
